Very nice picture, It shows how they are damn beautiful with the original color. :beerchug:

Agreed, that is one of the nicest pics of the AD's I have seen yet, they look like a very high end luxurious headphone in that pic.  It makes me even happier that I ordered the Red.  

 

I ordered Jan. 7th and received my tracking no. on Feb. 7th incase anyone that has ordered after me was wondering on the timing.

Thanks for this info. I ordered on Jan. 10th and got my tracking on Feb. 7th as well. Now I am very excited :)

I'm very excited to receive my AD's as well.  It's too bad I will probably be out of town when they get here though because I work out of town for 2 weeks on and 1 week off and I just got home yesterday.  Since it usually takes at least a week for something to ship from the U.S. to Canada due to customs they probably will arrive here after I head back to work.  I guess my wife will have to pick them up for me at the post office and I will have an awesome home day when I return:)

So these do actually work. The 3D printer is starting to get me exicted. Who knows what we could print in the next 5 years. I hope one day I could print out an HD 800 ;).

I currently have the Mad Dogs, and I'm on the waiting list for an Alpha Dog upgrade.  I'm powering these with an O2, but I'm considering upgrading to a tube amp to use with the Mad Dogs and ultimately the Alpha Dogs in a month or two (Hopefully my name comes up for an upgrade soon!).

 

Does anyone have any experience with the Alpha Dogs powered by a tube amp ~$300?  I'm considering the Project Ember since I've seen at least one or two others here with that, but I'm still not certain if I'm going to get that one.  Any guidance would be appreciated :biggrin:

I'll be using a millet hybrid maxed to power the ADs when I get them...will post thoughts then.

I love my ember, but you already got my opinion before. 

 

In that price range the best amps are probably going to be the Schiit Lyr, Emotiva Mini X (solid state amp), and the Project Ember. I think the Bottlehead Crack might be another good choice, but I am unsure the power output nor if they come prebuilt or not. These were the amps I looked at before purchasing the Ember.

+1 for Schiit Lyr

--1 for Bottlehead Crack

The Bottlehead Cracks are great amps but they are OTL and don't pair well with the Alpha Dogs.

I was not sure. I do not have any experience with them. The project ember is a better choice over the Lyr imo, unless you need more power (in which you really dont with the ADs). The Ember has a lot of advantages.

I've never had the Project Ember, so I cannot refute your post but the Lyr with orange globe tubes isn't a bad choice for the AD at all.

+1 lyr and OG's=very very nice!!

Solid state or hybrid tube amps are best with orthodynamic headphones. The reason for this is that a SS amp would typically have more current gain than voltage gain. A hybrid tube amp is the best of both worlds because it provides both types of gain. If I remember correctly OTL type tube amps aren't as good because they don't have the current gain needed to really power orthos.
